Welcome to Middle School at MTS, where lifelong learners of all ages collaborate in a shared mission; to produce students who are well-prepared and young at heart.
A mission that begins and ends with the development of knowledge and goodness within an academically inspiring and nurturing environment. A mission that drives academic curiosity, passion, empathy, and joy in our students as they prepare for High School and beyond.
Middle School is a journey of increased independence and support, bookended by signature events that preserve, mature, and celebrate our students’ joy of learning. At MTS, we cultivate academic growth through hard work, perseverance, and challenge. We are committed to developing conscientious students, who possess an awareness of their responsibility to others, as well as an understanding of, and appreciation for diversity in all of its forms.
The relationships between the members of our community remain an integral part of the MTS Middle School Experience. We welcome everyone to authentically participate, and help us build an environment driven by our core values: Lead with Kindness, Honor Childhood, Practice Active Inclusion, Celebrate the Journey, and Ask "What's Possible?" Our student-centered curriculum cultivates creativity and choice, while also nurturing skill development, critical thinking, and personal growth.
Led by our exceptional faculty, our Middle School at MTS focuses on the development of our students by four habits of excellence: committed exploration, critical reasoning, conscientious citizenship, and collective wellness and belonging. Mount Tamalpais School develops middle school students of conscience, who are prepared academically, socially, and culturally to lead and serve an increasingly complex and changing world.
I invite you to come see for yourself what makes our Middle School so unique.
